Yes, I prefer the noisy one too. Glad to hear I'm not the only one.

I thought the noise added an itchy gritty kind of feeling.

It's definitely nice being able to compare them to see the difference.

Noise is much easier to spot in dark areas, no question.

The chroma layer was not sharpened, only the Luma I think.
